Slow Cooker Pork and Gravy Sandwiches

This is another one of those super simple, easily adaptable recipes.  In fact, I can think of three different ways to serve it.  All of them would be delish.  We chose the simplest serving method – sandwiches.

But you could also make the pork and gravy and serve it as whole pork chops with your favorite sides.  Then repurpose the leftovers as sandwiches.

Or you could make open-faced sandwiches with mashed potatoes. Like a Manhattan.  I think there are other terms for this type of sandwich, but I can’t think of them right now.  Leave a comment if you know of some.

Slow Cooker Pork and Gravy Sandwiches

 

I used 2.5 lbs of boneless pork chops and 1 jar of gravy.  If you like it more gravy-ish, just add a second jar.  And if you’re serving them as open-faced sandwiches with mashed potatoes, you’ll want the second jar of gravy.

For a side dish, I cooked some farmer’s market veggies in a skillet.  It was a quick meal that we really liked.

Slow Cooker Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Sandwiches – an easy twist on an old favorite!

Does it get any easier than tossing chicken in the slow cooker with some barbecue sauce?  It’s a classic and a family favorite.  This recipe is really more of a twist on serving the barbecue chicken.  You start with those same two ingredients, but the sandwiches get bumped up a notch with the addition of pineapple slices and cheese.

Slow Cooker Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

 

I had intended to make another recipe I have for Hawaiian BBQ Sandwiches.  That recipe uses grilled chicken and ham.  It’s not hard, but I was feeling super lazy.  Plus, I’m loving using the slow cooker lately!

So I cooked the chicken with our favorite barbecue sauce in the slow cooker.  At dinner time, I shredded the chicken and served it on toasted buns, topped with sliced pineapple and provolone.  A quick turn under the broiler and they were ready to eat.

Oh my goodness!  The pineapple and provolone really set these sandwiches apart from plain bbq chicken sandwiches.  It added so much flavor to the meal and it’s an easy step.

Chicken Philly Sandwiches – 75 Days of Summer Slow Cooker Recipes

I’m not sure that Chicken Philly is the best name for these sandwiches, but it’s the one I came up with and I’m sticking to it.  Regardless of the name, these sandwiches are both tasty and easy.

Boneless chicken cooks in the slow cooker, along with artichoke hearts, green peppers and onions.  Once it’s cooked, the meat is shredded and served on toasted buns topped with cheese.

We love sandwiches like this with French fries.  Carrots and dip make a great side dish too.  I’ve even been known to serve popcorn with sandwiches on especially busy nights.

Sometimes, it really is just about getting everyone fed.  And this slow cooker recipe makes that easy and delicious too.

10 Cures for the Common Sandwich

We love sandwiches at our house for lunch or dinner.  But sometimes we get in a rut, plunking the same kind of meat and cheese between the same old bread, slathered with the same drab spread.

Here are some ways to pull your sandwich from the brink of boring:  [Read more...]

Grilled Fish Sandwich with Homemade Tartar Sauce

Sometimes, when I sit down to write up a recipe post, I can’t find anything to say.  This is one of those times.

Because, really, the beauty of this sandwich is that it’s so simple.

Grilled fish that cooks up quick on a George Foreman or other indoor grill.

Cajun seasoning  kicks the flavor up a notch or three.

Homemade tartar sauce that is just mayo with a little sweet relish stirred in.

Put it on a bun, serve it with fries and carrot sticks or salad.  It’s a little out of the ordinary, but casual and easy enough for a weeknight supper.

Here’s what you’ll need:  [Read more...]

Wimpys aka Sloppy Joes

When I was growing up, my family always called sandwiches like this Wimpys.   I’m not sure how old I was when I figured out that everyone else calls the Sloppy Joes.

When I made these, my intention was to just use a can of Manwich.  But I couldn’t find it anywhere in the grocery.  I looked in all the logical places, but no Manwich.

So, I decided to make some homemade.  This recipe is adapted from Simply Recipes.  Her recipe has ketchup and carrots.  I used chili sauce and red peppers.  Mine also has more meat, but I liked her base of seasonings although I skipped a few of the herbs and spices.  Change this up for your tastes and pantry.

Pizza Steak Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker

This recipe is for Uncle Larry.

It’s meat.  Not chicken.  Not pasta.  Meat.

To quote Uncle Larry, who reads this blog regularly,  “I don’t want any of that %*#@ chicken or *%#* pasta.  Gimme some meat.”

I may have paraphrased him just a bit, but you get the essence of what he said.  Now just imagine it being said by a very tall man with a deep voice.  The kind of man who cuts down his neighbors trees under the cloak of darkness and sends three-legged dogs to Michigan (2 true stories that we don’t have time for now).

But don’t let his gruff exterior fool you.  The man is a sweet heart, but he’s serious about his meat!

I’m pretty sure Uncle Larry will like this recipe and you will too.  Here’s what you’ll need to make it:  [Read more...]
